Protect yourself against Meningitis
All 17 to 18-year-olds and first year university students (aged 19-25) in the UK are eligible for the free vaccine which protects against meningococcal A, C, W and Y bacteria. 16 –25 year olds fall within the second highest at risk group and first year students in particular are vulnerable to the disease. We advise getting the vaccination as soon as possible to protect yourself against.
It’s also important to be aware of the signs and symptoms – meningitis and septicemia can strike quickly and can kill in hours. Check out the Meningitis ‘Fastest Hour’ video for more information.
If you have not had the ACWY vaccine call today to book to receive the vaccine.
